- luatex: next generation TeX engine
LuaTeX uses Lua scripting both as an extension to the TeX
macro language and as an extension to the typesetting
engine itself. A (growing) number of TeX internals are
made available to the embedded lua interpreter.
LuaTeX uses code and interfaces from Aleph to improve the
typesetting of non-latin alphabet languages, instead of
the TeXXeT code present in the current releases of pdfTeX.
Unicode and OpenType font support are added progressively,
and regular pdfTeX development will continue in this
branch as well.
The multi-lingual extensions are coded and merged by Taco
Hoekwater. Swift progress in that area is made possible
by a joint grant from Colorado State University and TUG,
under the 'Oriental TeX' project.
This package only contains the barebone binary. If you are
searching for support file, formats etc install texlive-luatex.
